While Nepotism in Bollywood has always been a hot topic of discussion, it has not been making headlines for a couple of months or so. However, the debate over the issue has sprung up and back in the news once again. But hey, if you’re thinking it’s Kangana Ranaut and Karan Johar again, then you are absolutely wrong. This time, it’s between two different and unexpected B-Town personalities. They are none other than the daily soap queen Ekta Kapoor and Tiger Shroff’s mother Ayesha Shroff.
It all began when Ekta Kapoor took to Instagram and shared a poster of her upcoming movie “Laila Majnu” which is being co-produced and directed by Imtiaz Ali.
This is what the head honcho of Balaji Telefilms, Ekta Kapoor, wrote and posted on her Instagram account:
While Ekta Kapoor’s post seems harmless, it has created a furor on her Instagram page. It seems like her caption that mentions the fact that her actors do not have any ‘film legacy or star fathers or godfathers’ has not gone down well with Jackie Shroff’s wife and Tiger Shroff’s mom Ayesha Shroff.
Seeing the post, Ayesha Shroff couldn’t keep it to herself and resorted to commenting against it. And what followed was a little war of words between the two. This is what Ayesha Shroff wrote on Ekta Kapoor’s post:
Meanwhile, Ekta Kapoor showed her disagreement with Ayesha’s remark and wrote the following:
No wonder, the entire verbal tiff between Ekta and Ayesha is nothing more than ironic since both come from film families. Meanwhile, nepotism has been one of the most sensitive topics amongst the B-town celebs. The issue surrounding the topic is that, on one hand, there are many who criticize the practice of giving a chance to someone just for being the son or daughter of a star and on the other, there are some who think that there’s nothing wrong as not every star kid succeeds and they too have to prove their caliber to survive in the industry. What’s your view on this much-debated topic?
